The End of My Love Affair with the Leather Spa: Jim’s Shoe Repair is the Best in New York City

The Leather Spa is a New York City institution. Scores of well heeled fashionistas go there to resole their Christian Louboutin stilettos, rescue stained bags, and resuscitate their shoes. I was one of those Leather Spa Lovers until today. I was blessed by the good Lord with a pair of calves that cut a cute form in summer dresses!

The State of New York Fashion Week: Inclusivity, Fewer Celebs, and the Disappearance of the “Blogger”

In Fashion, there are trends. And there are classics. And while in past years, we’ve seen bloggers get their shine, and celebs cause frenzies on the front row, this Fashion Week was back to basics. The bloggers that were lauded only a mere few years ago were noticeably absent on the front rows this Fashion Week, replaced by Youtubers, Tik Tokers, and Beauty Influencers. The celebs who typically cause hysteria were ghost: This Fashion Week coincided with Oscars week in…

The Bomb Life New York Shop: New Express Tailor on 92 Rivington (Good, But Don’t Expect Same Day)

Any fashionista worth her salt knows the importance of tailoring. Clothes look the best when they fit, and alterations can uplift any look! So I decided to share one of my New York gems with you: New Express Tailor on 92 Rivington. This place is no muss, no fuss. Nothing fancy, at all, but they are professional, capable, and best of all, able to make alterations same day. I actually wrote this before they took my garments at 9:30 am…

So Much To Be Thankful For: Kicking it on the Upper East Side and Le Bilboquet With Cuppy and Kelley

Happy Thanksgiving, Bomb Lifers! I’m currently in an Uber, getting work done as I settle in for a 2 hour ride to New Jersey!

Yesterday, I grabbed a drink with DJ Cuppy, a Nigerian entertainer whose latest single, Greenlight, recently hit 2 million views on Youtube!…

So in the days leading up to the craziness, I am taking care of myself. Writing a ton, getting my house in order, working out every single day (more on…
